Ultimate offshore rib

http://www.boatsandoutboards.co.uk/view/F78350/

Not this that's for sure - despite what they claim!!!

I wonder who makes the ultimate offshore rib? Ocean Dynamics must be one of the main contenders along with possibly Redbay and some of the big Humbers as turned out by Quinquari.

Mine surely will be true offshore boat going to do some 800 nautical miles offshore, 6 metre long without toobies (I am afraid) and cooker on board and not for sale either.

Have you got any pics of how yours RIB coming along Codprawn ?

Codders ...... You need your head examined if you think that Redbay would only 'Possibly' a contender for the ultimate offshore rib........ these Ribs are fu*king amazing, and if you dont believe me , get your ass on the HSS and Give it a go in Dun Laoghaire, in some decent weather..... You will be amazed......

I wouldn't choose a Redbay over an Ocean Dynamics or a Delta. That's kinda the only two I would look at and I would choose the Delta first! Unless I needed it for a custom appliation the the flexibility of an Ali hull would be important

Is it true the RNLI have just placed a monster order for 12m Ocean Dynamics?

Tim if I am in Dublin again I reserve the right to be persuaded by you over to redbays

Are you really planning to do this voyage in the Seaquel 600? Are you really planning to put three people, a Verado 275 and 900 litres of petrol on it?

Tell me you're just having a bit of fun, and it's all a joke. Please!

And pray may I ask, what do you know? Anyone would think you drove offshore ribs for a living.

It is true matter, although we can go away with lot less than 900 litres on board, but there will be three people on board and this to take place July 2006.

Planning going well and sponsoring as well.
